I did not need to know that Brett Kavanaugh was — or claimed to be — a virgin long after high school and beyond. That’s information I don’t need to hear from anyone; not the guy at the deli counter, not the guy driving the Super Shuttle, not even the hunky guy with the bulging biceps and killer smile who sits across from me at Starbucks, and certainly not the guy holding out for a seat on the Supreme Court.
I’m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, but there are some things best kept to yourself. I would think that he would know that since he comes from the upper class and went to a classy prep school and Yale. So I’m hard-pressed to understand why he’d go on Fox News (well, that I get) with his wife (that must have been an interesting ride home) and give America the mental image of someone holding back their virginity.
Setting aside all the accusations and drama; does this revelation on national TV demonstrate the judgment we’re looking for in a Supreme Court justice? Who talks about that sort of thing in a job interview, much less on cable unless it’s the Jerry Springer Christmas special?
